Statement of Cardinal Dolan on state budget negotiations

Published on March 26th, 2014

Following is a statement from Timothy Cardinal Dolan, archbishop of New York and president of the New York State Catholic Conference, regarding ongoing state budget negotiations in Albany:

“We have been advocating for the Education Investment Tax Credit as a critically needed measure to help provide scholarships for families to pay tuition for children attending private and parochial schools. At this time in Albany, there is discussion of expanding this education tax credit concept to include scholarship funding for college students in need, including those students who might not otherwise qualify for other assistance opportunities. We support this expanded concept and urge its passage.”
